I had a lot of long, loving posts written out in my head. But you get bullet points instead.

- I've been meaning to post. I have selfies to post! Profound meditations on life and fandom to postulate! (No, I don't.) But in then end, eh. My life's been pretty peaceful so far. Work stresses me out.

- I was sleeping on the bus and someone said I looked pretty which was weird but nice because she was a motherly older woman than a creepy dude. Is this sexist?

- I wonder if the movie Dunkirk will prompt people to read The Charioteer? A friend on Twitter said she checked it out to she can read my fic and I am alternately delighted and dismayed. Not to worry, I have told her that there is a lot better fic than mine out there and will be reccing when she's finished with the book.

- Also, the Doctor will be a woman and not a moment too soon! I am a little disappointed that the Doctor isn't going to be played by a person of color, but I also remember how shit the fandom was to Mickey and Martha, so.... (Not just the fandom, but the writers too. Honestly, that's one of the reasons I'm not particularly nostalgic about LJ-based/'old' fandom -- it was incredibly hostile place for POC.)

Anyway, Jodie Whittaker was excellent in Broadchurch, even during the shaky second season. (Haven't seen the third.) But the reason she looked so familiar is of course because she was in Cranford! Ah, the period drama industrial complex, what would I do without you? I'm think I should probably see season 10 (I wanna see Bill!) and then the 13th Doctor soonish. Maybe once it's available to stream and I can do it with one go.

- Also, I have been driving my AO3 subscribers away by posting nothing but SASO fills for months. I really need to take a break from it and post something else. But what? Why?

Anyway, I posted something that might be relevant to y'alls.

Doctor Who series 10

watersword: Karen Gillan as Amelia Pond in season 5 of Doctor Who (Doctor Who: Amelia Pond)
[personal profile] watersword
Having gotten excited about the Thirteenth Doctor and having finished watching the almost-last of the Twelfth — I am dubious about the Christmas special, given Moffat's Moffatness, but apparently this show is doing its usual thing:
part of the charm of Doctor Who is that it jumps the shark every couple of weeks, swims back under it in the other direction, puts a fricking laser beam on its fricking head, makes it meet its doppelgänger, beams it off to a vaudeville stage to perform a surrealist version of Mack the Knife, reveals that it’s actually the mastermind of a cunning plot to rig an underwater mining dispute, implicates it in a grandfather paradox, kills it off, brings it back with no explanation, angsts about killing it off, jumps it one more time, and then suddenly blindsides you with an episode that reminds you of all the feelings you ever had about that fucking shark in the first place. — tenlittlebullets

and we're in the "reminds you of all the feelings you ever had about that fucking shark in the first place" period of the cycle — I would like to be linked to reactions to the series 10 finale! What did you think?

Let's assume spoilers in the comments.

My apologies! I've had a very busy week, and I won't be able to finish this letter before assignments go out. I'll try to have it done by the end of Wednesday (or if I don't manage that, as soon as possible).

----------

Dear Artist or Author,

Thank you so much for making art or writing for me! I'm happy that we share a love for these fandoms and characters. I mean the prompts as suggestions only, in case it's helpful to have a starting point (and it’s fine to make art from my fic prompts or fic from my art prompts). If they don't work for you or if you have an idea you like better, then feel free to go with what inspires you. I don’t want this to be stressful, and I’m sure I will love what you make.

Drabbles, drabbles everywhere

[personal profile] zdenka
The Multifandom Drabble Exchange 2017 has just been revealed. (This is the same drabble exchange that was run on Imzy last year, but since Imzy is no more, it has now moved to AO3.)

Oh my GOSH you guys. I have ten gifts (or maybe eleven, since something on my gift page is currently stuck in a weird AO3 limbo). I feel like someone just handed me a big basket of puppies and kittens. I'm still in the middle of reading my way through them, and then there's the rest of the collection(s) to look forward to.

I was hoping to go on a treat-writing spree myself, but I was so busy/tired/distracted with Chess that I only managed a set of three drabbles for my recipient. Maybe next time!

The main collection (with one drabble for each person): here
The treat collection (with all the rest): here


Edit: It turns out the extra one was a glitch, but I'm so not complaining. I've read my gifts now and they are all just great.

Five Things an OTW Volunteer Said


"I’ve used fanfic archives, Yahoo Groups, LiveJournal, Fanfiction.net, AO3, and tumblr among others so I know just how important what OTW does is for fandom. I’ve seen the good (even great), bad, and ugly that can from fandom and I still keep coming back for more. I can’t get enough of seeing and reading other fans’ passion for the things that I love."

On a happier note, rec time! I was going to post this during the anon period, and then I realized it would be too conspicuous if I recced all the Tolkien fics except for my own. I did assemble them while creators were still anon, if that matters to anyone. Here are a handful of works I enjoyed, in these fandoms: the Tolkien fanfilm Born of Hope, Greek & Roman Mythology, The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, and The Lord of the Rings. (Disclaimer that I only know The Hunger Games from fandom osmosis, but I enjoyed the fic anyway.)
